THE sixteenth instalment of the prestige Sun Boardwalk Mr PE uberMANn competition has officially kicked off.

Nelson Mandela Bay will have a new representative when the new Mr PE uberMANn is announced in June.

Entries to the competition will be open until March 22 after which the chosen contestants will start a six-week journey of self-discovery, self-development, skills development, physical training and many more activities to boost their self-confidence.

They will be groomed in decorum, public speaking, leadership abilities, impeccable manners, dress sense and how to handle peer pressure.

The finalist will then be introduced at the Boardwalk Amphitheatre on May 1.

Finally, the identity of the new Sun Boardwalk Mr PE uberMANn will be revealed at a gala evening on June 3 at the Boardwalk Hotel ICC.

The Mr PE uberMANn title has grown considerably since its inception in 2002. It comes with a great deal of responsibility.

The man chosen to fulfil the role of the Mr PE uberMANn must be a young man to whom the city’s youth can look up to and must represent his sponsors and the people of PE with great aplomb.

The aim of the title is to embrace responsibility and encourage a positive impact through community activities.

The competition has a proud record of active involvement in social investment programmes in Port Elizabeth.

The 2017 titleholder will support three charitable organisations, namely The Association for the Physically Disabled (APD), CANSA and a charity of his choice.

The Sun Boardwalk Mr PE uberMAnn 2017 will be responsible for garnering proactive community involvement and corporate social responsibility support for these chosen charities.

The qualifying criteria to enter the competition include a valid driver’s license, a minimum of Grade 12 education level and sober habits.
